Golf Academy

Stuart Archibald

Head PGA Golf Professional

I started playing golf at the age of 3 and I turned professional at 18. I qualified as a PGA Pro at Burford Golf Club, then moved to The Vale Golf Club as Head Assistant. My next post took me back to my home course – Forest Hills, where I was a junior and obtained a scratch handicap at the age of 16 and was off +2 by the time I was 18.

It was nice to return as Head Golf Professional. The desire to teach led me to Brickhampton Court as Head Professional, during my time there I became a County Academy Coach and an Inclusive Coach for Gloucestershire.

Now I’m delighted to be here at Gloucester golf club. I teach everyone from beginner to tour standard, I’m a down to earth coach who believes that simplicity is the key to success.

Paul Johnson

PGA Golf Professional

I turned professional in 2000, having gained a degree at the University of Central Lancashire and have worked as a teaching professional at a variety of venues including Willow Valley Golf Club near Leeds, Bramshaw Golf Club in the New Forest and Hambrook Golf Centre in Bristol.

For the past 15 years I have been working at Hartpury College as a Lecturer and Coach on the BTEC Diploma in Sport (specializing in Golf) programme. I continue to work at Hartpury College, but having spoken to Keith, I was excited at the possibility that I may be able to provide a coaching service to Gloucester Golf Club’s current membership and beyond.

Outside of golf, I live locally (Brockworth) with my wife and 2 children and I enjoy running. I am yet to do my first marathon, but have taken part in about 5 half marathons and a few 10K races. I am looking forward to meeting many of the members.
